Roy Keane has labelled Paul Pogba as a “big problem” for Manchester United.

The France international has failed to make any positive impact for the Red Devils of late, as his side has collectively endured an abysmal form in recent weeks.

Following their 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Everton last Sunday, Pogba was very vocal about his side’s display at Goodison Park, taking responsibility for the defeat.

The talismanic midfielder admitted that the overall performance was disrespectful towards everyone associated with Manchester United, and that the mentality of all the players needed to undergo a huge change.

However, club legend and current TV pundit Roy Keane has simply refused to buy into Pogba’s comments, as the Irishman has claimed that those words have no meaning behind them.

After watching Pogba’s interview whilst on the Sky Sports panel before the Manchester Derby, Keane opined: “I wouldn’t believe a word he says. No meaning behind it.

“I don’t even think he believed what he was saying there. He’s on about being a teammate, if you’re going to be a good teammate you’ve got to run back when you’re defending.

“The guy is a talented boy, but we’re saying the same thing over and over again. The number of times we’ve seen him in games where he is not sprinting or running back.

“I don’t think he leads by example, from what I see. I don’t know what he’s like on the training ground or when they’re travelling, but from what I see. He mentioned body language and pride, but I don’t see it in his performances.

“He’s talking about body language – but throws his hands up in the air. He’s a big problem for United.”
